CRASH - Creativity and Arts in Social and Health Fields - Master’s Degree programme provides the students with strong expertise in the use of creativity and arts to promote well-being, in developer, reformer, expert and managerial roles in different working environments, in culture and arts fields and, where applicable, also in national or international expert positions in social and health care. Our graduates work as innovative reformers of multidisciplinary practices, providing solutions related to health, well-being, creativity and inclusion.
The programme is carried out as blended learning. The participants study in a multidisciplinary group consisting of experts from cultural, social and health fields. A special feature in CRASH Master’s Degree programme is multidisciplinary collaboration that starts at the outset of studies and continues throughout the programme. The students’ working communities contribute to the studies and new contacts will be created, for example, in the networks of Metropolia RDI projects and networks of other stakeholders. Learning is further supported by expert lectures, workshops, project and peer group work and guidance.
CRASH studies combine latest research with pragmatic working life development. Collaboration with international partners is an integral part of the programme, which opens up inspiring perspectives into international development of the field.
